Johnson County’s robotics teams continue to prosper despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Both representatives from JCMS and JCHS qualified for the state competition and competed virtually. The regular season closed out on Saturday with a competition and a friendly home game. Local teams waited with bated breath for final state results.
JCMS took second place at state and will compete in Vex Robotics’ remote world competition. Students and coaches were especially excited to compete since last year’s competition was canceled because of the current pandemic.
“We’re pretty excited especially since it’s the Year of the Mask,” said Quave.
The talented students continue working diligently to modify their programming, driving, and strategizing skills in preparation for the competition.
